Key features and improvements

License enforcement

The StackRox Kubernetes Security Platform enforces licensing restrictions in version 2.4.20 and higher.

Contact your sales representative or StackRox support if you don’t have a license.

New network graph

An enhanced network graph providing easier scaling and better interactivity is now available. You can now move namespaces and see more details to understand how your applications communicate.

Backup and restore to Amazon S3

You can now backup your database to an Amazon S3 bucket and restore from a saved copy. To get started, open Platform Configuration > Integrations and set up an S3 backup schedule.

Improved compliance layout

When you’re evaluating your infrastructure for compliance, now it’s easier to see the details of related entities for every cluster, node, namespace, deployment, or control. With the updated layout, you now can stay on one page and use multiple tabs to navigate and view all related entity information.

New policy field for port exposure

You can now write policies to find services that are exposed using Kubernetes LoadBalancer or NodePort services, or with hostPort pod configurations.

Important bug fixes

  • ROX-1892: In the previous version, removing nodes from cluster didn’t delete related objects from memory, resulting in the Sensor consuming large amounts of memory. The Sensor service now correctly frees memory when you remove nodes from a secured cluster.
  • ROX-1955: Previously, there was a mismatch between the actual default timeout and the default timeout displayed in the roxctl command-line interface (CLI) --help command. The roxctl CLI now correctly sets default timeouts for different commands, especially for database backups. You can still specify timeouts explicitly.
  • ROX-2011: In versions through, some users couldn’t get past an “Authenticating” message when accessing the StackRox portal. Version resolves this issue.

Known issues

  • ROX-1959: If you have created custom Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) roles, you must grant users Read access to the Licenses resource before they can access the StackRox portal.
